This is really good. I love that it keeps track of game time and that is part of the leader boards. I have been trying to beat the computer in under 3 minutes.

I am glad you picked this one up. It's a classic done very well and I hope it gets the attention it deserves.

Well done

I picked this up for a quick go since it was free and... Well... Let's just say "kept playing for somewhat longer than I intended."

No reason for anyone not to have this on their iPhone.

Just occurred to me: if somebody wanted to post a thread only with the intention of identifying all the old farts on TA, they couldn't do a better job. I think we're only missing SZ.
